    Hi! At Festival of the Arts to ship artwork home does it have to be shipped at the store you buy at, or can you visit multiple shops and ship all items together before leaving Epcot? To save space packing can souvenir popcorn buckets be shipped too?

    Hiya, Rachelle! Welcome back to planDisney! 

    Can you believe that your trip to Walt Disney World Resort is just a few weeks away? I couldn't be more excited for you! While you visit, you'll be able to experience everything that the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts has to offer – from the colorful cuisine to the visual arts! Speaking of art, let's talk about what to expect when bringing your favorite pieces home.

    Rachelle, your artwork will be available to ship home once purchased from each individual location! After speaking with a Cast Member, if you would prefer to ship them home all at once, the recommendation is to find a local shipping store to provide this service. While I'm unsure what options will be available to you this year, in past years there was an option to have your art held either at the front of the park or at the International Gateway so you didn't have to carry it with you all day. This may be a good option if you're hoping to mail your pieces at the same time and want to slowly collect them throughout your day at EPCOT. However, since the festival doesn't start until January 13, it's not clear which holding and shipping options will be available quite yet. My best piece of advice would be to speak to someone at the artist booths for the most current shipping options you will have!

    When it comes to shipping merchandise from Walt Disney World Resort, you can purchase an item from a merchandise location (the actual storefronts located in the parks) and have it shipped to your home, usually through FedEx or UPS. As for the popcorn bucket, if it's purchased at one of the outdoor kiosks, it would be unavailable to ship it from there. To save space in my luggage, I like to fill my popcorn bucket with smaller items or soft t-shirts when packing my suitcase!

    I hope I was able to help you today, Rachelle! If you have any other questions, please write to us again. You've got a friend in me!

    See ya real soon!
